2023 SCHOOL AGE CONCERT INFORMATION

Please bookmark this page for future reference.

 

WHAT TO EXPECT THIS YEAR.... 

This year we will be holding two concerts!  We will again be at the beautiful theatre at Bunjil Place!

We make every effort to ensure our concerts are as enjoyable as possible for all involved, with this in mind, we would like to advise that our afternoon show will be around three hours.

Please note:  All pre-school children will all be in our shorter morning show.

Unlike many other activities, students have been working towards this day for much of the year and we thank you for your patience and excitement for what will be a super epic show!  

While we do our best to keep the show flowing, we also thank you for your patience should there be an occasional stoppage. Pre-planning will ensure this is kept to a minimum, but as you can understand working with children, sometimes last minute toilet trips or quick costume changes can mean a small delay. 

We are SO EXCITED for our students to have the opportunity to perform in such a beautiful, grand theatre and can't wait to share all of their hard work with you!

TIMES:  Please see below

LOCATION:  BUNJIL PLACE - 2 Patrick Northeast Dr, Narre Warren VIC 3805

Rehearsal is Compulsory for students to perform in the show.

Bunjil Place is an incredible theatre with dressing rooms on three levels.  Students who are not able to attend rehearsal will not be familiar with where to go and their positions on stage.  Rehearsals allow students to calm their nerves, rehearse their dance in the large space and ensure they know where to go and when.  It is an important part of being on the team. If your child is unable to make rehearsal due to extenuating circumstance, please let us know ASAP.

PERFORMER DROP OFF - SIGN IN AND OUT

PLEASE DROP OFF PERFORMERS AT THE STAGE DOOR

This is located at the back of the building.  Please follow the signs.

Parents will be required to sign students in and out. We thank you for your patience and support with us doing this safely

Students are to please arrive 10 minutes before their allotted time to sign in.  Students will then be taken backstage by Confident Kids and Inspire Academy staff. 

 

Please ensure your child is NOT LATE, as they may miss their item and latecomers make it difficult to run the rehearsal.

 

WHAT TO WEAR TO REHEARSAL:

For rehearsal please wear your class attire and correct shoes (if in a dance class).

Costumes, hair and make up are NOT required for rehearsal.

 

WHAT TO BRING TO REHEARSAL:

Please bring a bag with ALL ITEMS NAMED.

  • Dance Shoes (if in a dance class)

  • Jumper

Please do not bring extra toys, books, ipads etc as we will be moving fast, the kids will be busy, and we can't guarantee that all items will remain safe.

FOOD AT REHEARSAL 

We ask performers who have long rehearsal times to please come well prepared with plenty of food and water. Please ensure all food is clearly named.  Children WILL NOT BE ALLOWED TO SHARE FOOD UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES.

We have multiple students with food allergies and as such we strictly prohibit any foods containing nuts/seeds, chocolate, eggs and please no fizzy or sticky drinks. Any food found containing these ingredients will be taken by staff to ensure the safety of all performers. 

If you have concerns about your child eating during this time please feel free to call Jenny on 0422 221 461 no later than the week before concert or rehearsal. 

We thank you in advance for your understanding and cooperation.


 

ASTHMA PUFFERS, EPI PENS AND OTHER MEDICATION

If there is an occurrence where any Confident Kids or Inspire Academy staff member deems it necessary, an ambulance will be called on behalf of the student and parent. This will be at the cost of the student’s parent.  Parents will also be contacted as soon as practically possible and brought backstage. 

If your child requires an asthma puffer or epi-pen, please provide this information in writing (including an action plan) prior to concert and let MICHELLE know on the day where your child's puffer or epi-pen is stored.
